A gift from Vincenzo & Sofia Abbruzzese from our reunion from Sofia's summer 2016 with us. Enjoying tonight and send the perfect moment for aromatics. Perfect Queen Anne cherries, sage, basil and iron. Love so much. — a month ago
Clerico 'Ciabot Mentin Ginestra' Barolo 2001 Drinking just right now with both richness and some sediment so, good time for enjoying in my opinion. Bold depth of black cherry aromatics, fennel and iron. Paired with braised lamb verdetto. (Thank you Nunzio & Joanne Alioto) — a month ago
Campania love with Montevetrano 1995 & 1996 after the Quintodecimo Exultet Fiano. All beautiful. 1996 bay leave, juniper, red currant, 1996 - smooth, vintage leather, rose, dried porcini ... so fun to taste together — 2 months ago
This is the special 2004 Naima 'Peter Willburger Settembre, 1994 dal cicio 'Le Coste' aquaforte, puntasecca carta giapponese' Hand delivered by Bruno when my son Asher was 3 days old in March 2009. Bruno is living classic Italian History... You can meet him, hear about the philosophical beauty of Cilento or drink this perfect bottle that is more towards the feminine aromas of aglianico with demure tannins and a Capello acidity...in love and so excited to capture this moment of this bottle.. ❤️❤️❤️ — 10 months ago
